Oh, the memories for me of this recipe. It was just about my favorite meal growing up and I think it’s so sad that I’ve never met anyone else that has had it. Since this recipe has been in the family for generations, I have no idea where it came from. I would love to know if any of you have ever had this before. My Nana mostly cooked Italian and it’s her recipe, but it doesn’t really seem Italian, so who knows where it came from.
The traditional way of making it is by grinding all the ingredients in a meat grinder, so if you have a meat grinder, please feel free to use it instead of the food processor. I still have two meat grinders, actually, but I don’t use them because they are missing pieces but I use them as decor in my farmhouse theme because they remind me of mixture and the good times I had helping my mom and dad make it and how much I loved eating it. Come to think of it, this is the only meal I can remember as a child that my dad would help make. I think that’s because you need one person to crank the meat grinder and one person to put the ingredients in. It probably also didn’t hurt that my dad loves this recipe himself.
The leftovers are really good too. All you do is don’t cook the mixture. You save it and just heat up how many you want in your toaster oven. So we would eat it as lunch a lot as a child since you can get it ready ahead of time and have a fresh, hot lunch in minutes.
This recipe is very kid-friendly and a great snack or easily eaten on the go. Your children will love this one and will be asking for more! Enjoy! Let us know what you think and how it works out for you!
I'm so in love with mixture. The bacon mixed with cheese, onion & peppers is to die for. My children devour this stuff.
